Numerical methods for the quantification of the mechanical properties of crystal aggregateswith morphologic and crystallographic texture

The influence of an anisotropic distribution of crystal orientations and an anisotropic average grain shape is analysed using finite element simulations. By the numerical approach, which is based on a statistical volume element with periodic microstructure and periodic boundary conditions, the influence of the crystallographic and the morphologic texture can be separated by combining (an)isotropic orientation distributions with (an)isotropic grain morphologies.
